-Hello, everyone! I'm Oli White and this is Cinemaniacs.

-CineMinis.

0:00:370:00:44

Coming up, first film stories from famous actors.

0:00:440:00:47

I just remember being so excited to be on a movie set.

0:00:470:00:51

It changed my life because I got paid.

0:00:510:00:53

-Load of cameramen and it was really, like...

-Whoa!

0:00:530:00:58

Why Wimpy Kid is such a star.

0:00:580:01:02

He was afraid that the kids, the little kids, were peeing in the pool.

0:01:020:01:05

I'm peeing.

0:01:050:01:07

And can Michael Sheen, Super Actor, speak like a true Geordie?

0:01:090:01:13

-Over the top of the freezing down.

-Over the top of the freezing down.

0:01:130:01:16

-Rusty-looking cook stove.

-Very good.

0:01:160:01:18

I don't even know what the accent was.

0:01:180:01:20

BUZZING

0:01:230:01:26

What do you think? This is awesome! My very own movie cloud.

0:01:260:01:30

If you want to know how to make your own movie cloud, watch this.

0:01:300:01:35

Cloud, take me away. Mmmmm!

0:01:350:01:39

Introducing Mr Mike Tucker, here to show you how to create

0:01:390:01:43

special effects Hollywood-style in The Secrets Of Movie-Making.

0:01:430:01:47

Today, we're going to show you how to make your very own movie clouds,

0:01:490:01:53

so grab a couple of friends and let's get started.

0:01:530:01:55

This week, we're going to do stormy skies and clouds.

0:01:550:01:59

This effect is a really impressive one and,

0:01:590:02:01

if you've ever seen Close Encounters of the Third Kind, you'll know why.

0:02:010:02:05

You'll need a fish tank, a jug, water and saltwater, milk,

0:02:050:02:10

pegs and some black bin liners.

0:02:100:02:12

OK. Step one is to get our saltwater into the tank

0:02:120:02:18

and fill it up to a layer where we want our cloud to happen.

0:02:180:02:23

Step two.

0:02:230:02:24

We need to make sure that the two types,

0:02:240:02:27

the saltwater and the fresh water, don't mix,

0:02:270:02:30

so we're going to use a bit of bin liner to help separate the two.

0:02:300:02:34

-Just clip it to the edge of the tank.

-Step three.

0:02:340:02:38

Carefully start pouring the fresh water in on top of the plastic.

0:02:380:02:43

-Step four.

-Right, we now need to do the tricky bit,

0:02:430:02:46

which is get the plastic out without disturbing the two layers of liquid.

0:02:460:02:50

So, we need to try

0:02:500:02:52

and slide this plastic out over the top of the water.

0:02:520:02:56

Right.

0:02:560:02:57

-That's what we call an inversion layer.

-Step five.

0:02:590:03:03

Now we've let that settle a little bit,

0:03:030:03:05

we need to get our milk in there.

0:03:050:03:08

Now, pour it in from one end,

0:03:080:03:12

quite slowly, in a stream,

0:03:120:03:16

and then see what happens when it starts to hit...

0:03:160:03:19

-Wow!

-You'll now see that the clouds are travelling between the saltwater

0:03:200:03:26

and the fresh water.

0:03:260:03:27

-Wow.

-It really looks like clouds.

0:03:270:03:30

Step six.

0:03:300:03:31

You can create a background by sticking a drawing

0:03:310:03:34

or photo behind the fish tank,

0:03:340:03:36

or you can just make a background with one of your own bin liners.

0:03:360:03:39

We can clip in place with our pegs...

0:03:390:03:43

OK, so, if you come down low, so you're looking up at it,

0:03:430:03:46

try and avoid seeing your reflection.

0:03:460:03:48

And start to get really fancy.

0:03:510:03:53

You could add food colouring into the milk,

0:03:530:03:56

in which case you'll get coloured clouds.

0:03:560:03:59

And if that isn't enough for you, try this.

0:04:000:04:03

By taking something like a torch,

0:04:030:04:05

you can start getting things like lighting effects.

0:04:050:04:08

Oh, wow!

0:04:080:04:09

Thunder!

0:04:090:04:11

And that's how you make your very own movie clouds.

0:04:110:04:14

Imagine you've made your first film. What was it like?

0:04:190:04:22

One word that sums up making my first film is excitement.

0:04:220:04:27

It changed my life because I got paid.

0:04:270:04:29

I just remember being so excited to be on a movie set

0:04:290:04:34

because it's not something you really get to experience very often.

0:04:340:04:38

I was shocked actually at the size and the scale of the production.

0:04:380:04:42

There are so many different people.

0:04:420:04:44

-Loads of cameramen and it was really, like....

-Whoa!

0:04:440:04:48

-Props.

-Grips.

-Like that.

0:04:480:04:51

-Lighting crew.

-Art department.

0:04:510:04:53

-Sound operators.

-It was enormous.

0:04:530:04:55

Runners, everybody.

0:04:550:04:56

You look at some of the names on the call sheet on a morning,

0:04:560:04:59

just a who's who of the best British acting talent, and you're just

0:04:590:05:05

so nervous about making a mistake or messing up in front of these people.

0:05:050:05:09

Now, let's head behind the scenes.

0:05:090:05:12

ParaNorman.

0:05:120:05:13

Peace, man!

0:05:160:05:17

As you were, soldier.

0:05:190:05:21

Sir, yes, sir.

0:05:210:05:23

My name's Sam Fell. I'm an animation director.

0:05:230:05:26

Everyone in the real world thinks I'm a freak

0:05:260:05:28

and, you know what, maybe they're right.

0:05:280:05:30

I'll tell you a secret about Norman. He doesn't just have one face.

0:05:300:05:33

He has thousands of faces.

0:05:330:05:36

Thousands of faces that give him millions of expressions.

0:05:360:05:41

And how that works is, we can take his face off.

0:05:410:05:44

And then what we can do is put on other faces,

0:05:440:05:48

so this face was from when he was cleaning his teeth.

0:05:480:05:53

A thing that gave us

0:05:580:05:59

the most incredible range of expressions is that we split

0:05:590:06:02

his faces in half,

0:06:020:06:03

so we were able to change his mouth

0:06:030:06:08

separately from his eyebrows,

0:06:080:06:12

and then we had an incredible little team of people painting out

0:06:120:06:17

that line, frame by frame, so it looked like one face again.

0:06:170:06:21

Hi, my name's Jeff Kinney,

0:06:240:06:26

the author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and I'm a cinemaniac.

0:06:260:06:29

Finding the actors was very difficult at first.

0:06:370:06:40

We had to start with our Greg.

0:06:400:06:42

School isn't even out yet.

0:06:420:06:44

Maybe we should come back.

0:06:440:06:45

Some of the actors looked a lot like my characters,

0:06:450:06:48

like Rowley Jefferson is a really good approximation.

0:06:480:06:51

Geronimo!

0:06:510:06:53

When you sit people down in a theatre,

0:06:540:06:57

you have to change things up to make sure the story really has

0:06:570:07:00

an impact, so we did things like added the mother and son dance

0:07:000:07:04

to really amp up the conflict between Greg and Rowley.

0:07:040:07:07

There was one day on set when something really funny happened.

0:07:110:07:13

Zac Gordon did not like being in the swimming pool.

0:07:180:07:21

Greg, honey, go help your brother.

0:07:210:07:23

Because the water was this off colour

0:07:230:07:25

and he was afraid that the kids, the little kids, were peeing in the pool.

0:07:250:07:29

-What's so funny?

-I'm peeing.

0:07:290:07:32

And then, as a joke,

0:07:340:07:35

the girl who played Holly Hills threw a candy bar into the pool

0:07:350:07:40

and then she said, "There's something in the pool"

0:07:400:07:43

and everybody on set just completely freaked out.

0:07:430:07:45

It was kind of gross, but it was very funny.

0:07:450:07:48

I think there will be a fourth movie.

0:07:480:07:51

And I really hope that The Long Haul gets made because it would take us

0:07:510:07:54

outside the school environment completely, put the characters

0:07:540:07:56

out on the road, it would be a totally different kind of story.

0:07:560:07:59

It'd be really fresh.

0:07:590:08:01

I think we could get away with keeping the same parents

0:08:010:08:04

and maybe even Rodrick, but the kids who played Greg and Rowley in the

0:08:040:08:07

first movies, they've grown up,

0:08:070:08:08

but Greg is a cartoon character

0:08:080:08:11

and he'll stay the same age for ever.

0:08:110:08:13

Matthew and James, specialist subject - Fantastic Mr Fox.

0:08:290:08:34

What are the names of the three farmers who are after Mr Fox?

0:08:340:08:39

-BOTH: False.

0:09:260:09:29

Correct answer - Step In Time.

0:09:290:09:32

Alisha, specialist subject - Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.

0:10:070:10:11

What was the reason the shrinking machine started working correctly?

0:10:110:10:15

Because Ron hit a baseball...in it.

0:10:150:10:20

Alisha, you gave no incorrect answers.

0:10:200:10:24

You've conquered the Rock Hard Quiz.

0:10:240:10:28

And now the star of Alice in Wonderland, Tron

0:10:280:10:31

and Twilight, Michael Sheen, Super Actor!

0:10:310:10:37

I am being put to the test.

0:10:380:10:40

Can I replicate an accent, do an accent

0:10:400:10:45

and convince those judges out there that I am from that place?

0:10:450:10:52

This is the Accent Challenge.

0:10:520:10:54

In three minutes I'm going to have to learn how to do this accent...

0:10:540:10:58

With the help of voice coach Catherine.

0:10:580:11:01

Learning an accent is all about brain, ear, mouth connection,

0:11:010:11:05

so how often you've heard it, how often has it been in your ear?

0:11:050:11:08

I am going to be put up against people doing their natural voice,

0:11:080:11:12

what they speak like.

0:11:120:11:13

I think Michael is incredibly brave.

0:11:130:11:16

In fact, I don't know many actors who would put

0:11:160:11:19

-themselves in this position with an accent.

-'Hm, tell me about it!

0:11:190:11:22

'I have to succeed in two out

0:11:220:11:24

'of three voice rounds to win today's challenge.

0:11:240:11:27

'The judges will hear two voices on this speaker phone -

0:11:270:11:30

'one will be the real accent and the other will be me

0:11:300:11:34

'trying to do the accent!'

0:11:340:11:36

It's time for The Challenge.

0:11:360:11:38

You've done this one before?

0:11:380:11:39

Not really, but I've just heard it a bit.

0:11:390:11:42

OK. Now, THs, it's halfway between a T-H and a D. It's not quite a D.

0:11:420:11:47

-IRISH ACCENT: It's good, Mother.

-Yeah, that's it.

0:11:470:11:49

-Over the top of the freezing down.

-Over the top of the freezing down.

0:11:490:11:52

'That's learning time up, so bring on The Challenge!'

0:11:520:11:56

Cornfields were yellow. The oats were green.

0:11:560:11:59

The hay had been put up in stacks in the green meadows.

0:11:590:12:03

The cornfields were yellow. The oats were green.

0:12:030:12:05

The hay had been put up in stacks in the green meadows.

0:12:050:12:08

I think the first one's real

0:12:080:12:10

because it was...it seemed a bit more like the actual person.

0:12:100:12:15

'After the first round, there are five votes for voice one

0:12:150:12:19

'and only one vote for voice two.

0:12:190:12:21

'Whoo-hoo!

0:12:210:12:23

'Voice one was me, not the real

0:12:230:12:24

'thing, which means the point is mine!'

0:12:240:12:26

The hay had been put up in stacks in the green meadows.

0:12:260:12:29

'Next up...'

0:12:290:12:31

It's Geordie. 'All the way from Newcastle.

0:12:310:12:33

'This one's tough.'

0:12:330:12:35

-NEWCASTLE ACCENT:

-Rusty-looking.

-Rusty-looking cook stove.

-Very good.

0:12:350:12:38

Dorothy lived in the midst of the great Kansas prairies

0:12:380:12:42

with Uncle Henry, who's a farmer, and Aunt Em, who's the farmer's wife.

0:12:420:12:46

Dorothy lived in the midst of the great Kansas prairies with

0:12:460:12:50

Uncle Henry, who was a farmer and Aunt Em, who was the farmer's wife.

0:12:500:12:55

I think the first one was a bit, like, over the top.

0:12:550:12:58

The second one did sound normal in a way.

0:12:580:13:00

'After the second round, they all think the first voice was fake. Argh!

0:13:020:13:06

'They were right. Voice two was the real Geordie, so I lose that point.'

0:13:060:13:10

Aunt Em was the farmer's wife.

0:13:100:13:12

'One round all, but this is for The Challenge.'

0:13:120:13:15

Finnish! I've never heard anyone from Finland speak.

0:13:150:13:19

Over to you.

0:13:190:13:21

The thing is, English is a second language, so that means

0:13:210:13:24

they're going to pronounce things they way that it's read.

0:13:240:13:27

They're going to pronounce all the Rs because they're in the spelling.

0:13:270:13:30

"Dear little girl," you know,

0:13:300:13:32

they're all going to be in the spelling.

0:13:320:13:34

Once, she gave her a little cap of red velvet,

0:13:340:13:37

so she was always called Little Red Riding Hood.

0:13:370:13:41

Once, she gave her a little cap of red velvet,

0:13:410:13:45

so she was always called Little Red Riding Hood.

0:13:450:13:49

I didn't even know what the accent was.

0:13:490:13:51

I would like to apologise to the entire nation of Finland.

0:13:510:13:55

-I think the second one's real.

-Second.

-Second.

0:13:550:13:58

'The votes are in and, wow, the second voice was me! Result!

0:13:580:14:02

'That's two-one to me!'

0:14:020:14:03

She gave her a little cap of red velvet.

0:14:030:14:06

'Today's challenge started with me learning how to speak Irish

0:14:060:14:11

'and ended with me proving that I am a man of 1,000 accents!

0:14:110:14:15

'Well, at least two.

0:14:150:14:16

'And that means, for today at least, I am Michael Sheen - Super Actor!'

0:14:160:14:23

And that really is almost it, except to tell you that

0:14:280:14:31

when they made ET The Extra-Terrestrial, they created

0:14:310:14:34

the sound effect of ET walking from using a T-shirt filled with jelly...

0:14:340:14:39

SQUELCHING

0:14:390:14:42

..to make it extra squishy. Ooh!

0:14:420:14:45

Phone...home!

0:14:550:14:58

Ooh, yum. I'm Oli White and you've been watching Cinemaniacs.

0:14:590:15:04
